Donating Leftover Halloween Candy

Our orthodontist's office has a creative idea to turn your Halloween candy into cash! For each pound of candy that is brought to their office, Dr. Alvarez will pay $2.00. You get to keep $1.00 per pound and the other dollar per pound will be donated to the American Diabetes Association. They have a scale there and of course, they will round up! In addition, the candy that they buy from the children will be donated to an organization that sends care packages to our troops overseas. November is American Diabetes Month. Help make a difference!

I wish more doctors/dentists/etc. would do this. What a nice idea.

Also, any hard candy can be given to the nursing homes. They use it for bingo prizes.
